Help! Iphone wont restore!?

Help! Iphone wont restore!?

Postby blyth5 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 2:16 pm

i jailbroke my iphone last night, but something must have gone wrong, bc my cydia app was white and my phone app was gone. oh, and wifi wasnt working.
i decided to simply restore it and jailbreak again, but restore isnt working.
i plug it in, press restore and after a while it comes up with iphone could not be restored andit says its error 1602. on the apple website it says just uninstall and reinstall, but that didnt work.
tell me how to fix this problem please! ( but i've tried a bunch of different ways, so i might have already tried ur solution )
and as a last resort, can i jailbreak over a jailbreak without restoring?
are there any other programs than itunes that'll restore it?
its a iphone 3g running 4.1.
thanks :)

Ok try this because something like that happened to my device, simply hold the home button then connect your device to your computer then let go of the home button, this should put you iPhone into a complete turn off. Once you have done that simply press restore, hope this works :)

I googled the similar question last several days. during the process of trying to search the solution I ended up getting a real iphone 4g from www.iphonenetwork.tk!! mine is coming in the next few days & im loving it!!

Good luck

Error 1600 and 1602 is a common problem with 3G phones. You need to use tiny umbrella to get you out of restore mode. To use tiny umbrella purchase from this link, the instructions are for saving shsh blobs but there is a button on the software to get you out of recovery mode:-

If that doesn’t work purchase iReb which also does the same thing. Get it form here:
http://ih8sn0w.com/index.php/welcome.snow
iReb will prpeare your phone for jailbreak, it claims to bypass the 1600's error problem but doesnt always work.
If you do get it to work you can only jailbreak with resn0w. Follow these instructions:

Hope that helps
